Shameka Parrish-Wright of The Bail Project, McConnell & First Steps Act, Bevin v. Beshear, & Medicaid Waiver Update

November 29, 2018

We were elated this week to speak with Shameka Parrish-Wright of The Bail Project.  The Bail Project uses a revolving fund to bail people out of jail.  She spoke with us about what her work entails, why she does it, and some powerful stories of lives that have been changed by the group.  it's a very powerful interview, and we are glad to share it.

Before that, Jazmin brings us stories about Sen. McConnell holding up a vote on a criminal justice reform bill and about a win Governor Bevin had in court in his attempt to investigate the Beshear administration.  Robert talks about the Trump administration's reapproval of Kentucky's Medicaid waiver.  Plus this week sees the return of QUICK HITS.
